5 days a week,
i fight this battle.
i hate the fight.
one year isn't so long.
after one year, i will be gone.
not because i don't have the strength to stay,
but because i have the courage to walk away.
|mum and flowers can never be separated|
|swiss army knife|
the cheapest one i found is CHF20
|where else you can walk around town with that view..|
|people usually go to interlaken/lauterbrunnen for one of two reasons:|
schilthorn or jungfrau.
schilthorn is famous for being a james bond movie shooting location,
jungfrau is top of europe.
i chose schilthorn because some say the view is better,
and also it's significantly cheaper :)
|small stopover on the way to schilthorn - already 2677 m!|
|so many skiers|
possibly one good thing about the whole ride up being foggy,
you can't see just how high up you are..
anyone with fear of heights? :P
|nearing the top, when the clouds finally clear|
|on the train ride from lucerne to interlaken --|
this picture was taken somewhat at the midpoint of the journey
|we traveled on the goldenpass line, a scenic ride, as they say. lucerne to interlaken took 2 hours, full of sceneries like these. mountains and fields and lakes and rivers. many more pictures but we were traveling on a train, so they are quite blurry :(|
|lake brienz, with its water so blue..|
|interlaken ost (east) to lauterbrunnen on a train took another half hour|
|the view when we arrived - foggy.|
i was so scared that we wouldn't be able to see anything on our trip to schilthorn :(
|the famous staubbach falls, most prominent waterfall in lauterbrunnen.|
sadly it's closed in early spring, or else i would've gone exploring behind the waterfall :(
|the big arch in front of lucern bahnhof.|
|this picture is really interesting to me.|
we just spent a restless night in basel euroairport:
arrived the night before and took an early train out of basel to lucerne.
basically we haven't showered in a day and haven't had enough sleep.
luggage were kept at a left luggage, where we had to find CHF 7 in coins to use the lockers!!
this really frustrates me.
|this view is really worth it though.|
the water is crystal clear and blue.
switzerland and their clear waters..
i could drown in them
|took early boat out to vitznau|
|this piece of paper covers all transportation in switzerland for 3 consecutive days,|
be it bus, train, boats, etc.
mine costs EUR146.
yes, it's a bomb (i still cry remembering the pain when paying for this)
but it takes my mind off worrying about catching trains.
|mama enjoying the view.|
she's really happy the whole time we were here :)
|i would guess that this is a compass and not a clock.|
at centraal station
|this costs 13.50 euro. makes more sense if you try to go to two or more out of town places.|
my suggestion: zaanse schans and volendam, and if you think you can, squeeze marken in your itinerary as well :)
|imagine having a house like that..|
zaanse schans is a 40-minute bus ride from central amsterdam,
so you go out to the village a bit
|they use these clogs everywhere, from day to day work and also on special occasions like wedding :)|
|this building is pretty.|
|so many bikes in amsterdam, so parents take their kids in this 'wheelbarrow'. so cutee|
|not as much people crowded around the sign, so managed to take a pic or two :)|
|people play in and out of the water fountain.|
this is such a cool place to hang out
